    I enjoy the atmosphere at Mount St. Mary's University. Set against a backdrop of the Catoctin Mountains, the Mount is a great campus full of rich history dating back to 1808. With many of the buildings in the style of Gothic architecture it is quite beautiful to walk amongst as one goes from class to class. It is excellent being in attendance here at the Mount and well worth the while.

    You really do not get the campus feel or college town here. Weekends and downtime can be quite boring. However, I did enjoy getting to know my professors and classmates.

    The Mount is a fantastic place to go to college. Whether you live on campus or are a commuter, everyone is involved in everything. They just finished renovating a new housing building, which is quite nice. The overall atmosphere here is wonderful, we have such a great sense of family and community.

    The Mount is an excellent place to live and go to school. The community is constantly referred to as a family due to everyone knowing each other on campus. The dorm rooms are currently being renovated, with two thirds of the campus done with modern rooms - no dorm horror stories here. The food is excellent at the food court as well as the cafe on campus. Plus, the lounges around campus are great for studying or just hanging around campus.
